Charles Barkley has plead guilty to DUI, and got five days in jail. ESPN.com has the details…
The TNT basketball analyst and former All-Star faced two counts of DUI from a New Year’s Eve arrest in Scottsdale. He also plead responsible to a third charge of running a red light, according to the radio station.
Barkley will serve five days in jail, must enter an alcohol awareness program and was fined more than $2,000. He starts serving his sentence March 21.
Barkley, 45, had a blood-alcohol level of .149 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of .08 percent in Arizona when he was pulled over.
Barkley took a six-week leave of absence from his job with TNT but returned recently after apologizing for the incident.
“I think that a DUI is unacceptable,” he added. “That can’t happen and I’ve got to challenge other people, not just celebrities or jocks. You have to really think before getting behind the wheel after you’ve been drinking.”
You do the crime, you do the time. Or you get away with it.
